2018 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Second Base

It wasn't too long ago that the second base position was almost as boring and offensively deprived as the catcher spot. Not anymore.

The second base rankings and analysis are below, and shortstops will be released tomorrow. Second base has been a headache this season. The elite options have been fine, but most of the other veterans seem to be having a down season.
